I've just got a few thoughts that I feel like sharing for opinion and discussion.
-Amendola is looking terrific. He may actually be better than he was before his injury. He's beating Finnegan a fair amount and is continually making plays. I really forgot how valuable and how much of a playmaker Amendola was and could be for us.
-Greg "The Leg" Zuerlein is the real deal. He may be the best rookie kicker, ever. I'm so excited to see this guy boot 'em from 55-60 yards on Sundays.
-If we can get Steve Smith pre-injury form, we really struck gold. He's basically had 2 off years to heal himself and is looking good. He is much like Amendola, except he will play on the outside as well.
-Greg Salas is the biggest sleeper on this team. Precise routes, great hands, decent speed and size, and a killer YAC guy. I think Greg will be a terrific WR in the NFL.
-I wan't to see Daryl Richardson healthy, and I also want to hear something about RB Calvin Middleton. We already know Pead has the COP and #2 role, I wan't to hear about #3 and #4.
-McIntosh is a monster. Last year he single-handedly embarrassed us in our meeting vs the Redskins. If he can get caught up, and get aligned and gel with the #1's soon, he can be a good OLB.
-Janoris Jenkins will be the DROY, no doubt about it. He looks like a veteran out there. Cannot wait to see a combo of Finnegan and Jenkins covering WR's.
-I think Quinn "Moose" Ojinnaka will be the starter at LG and we will have Robert Turner or Rokevious Watkins as a swing tackle in short yardage situations.
-Darian Stewart will be a breakout player this year. He has amazing range and is a good tackler (even though PFF graded him terribly). He has the makings of an elite FS in this league.
